Presented by: Coastal Jazz & Blues Society
Formed in 2003, Trio Tarana is led by Indian-born, New York-based percussionist/composer Ravish Momin (Billy Bang, William Parker). The group primarily utilizes Indian and East Asian rhythms (including Japanese, Afghani, and Indonesian) as the foundation for a new creative musical experience. In a review of Trio Tarana’s acclaimed debut CD entitled Climbing the Banyan Tree (Clean Feed), AllAboutJazz.com proclaims that “Trio Tarana is without precedent in the world of improvised music. A true synthesis of North African, South and East Asian motifs with classical organization and the immediacy of free improvisation has probably not existed prior to Climbing the Banyan Tree.” Tarana’s New York-born violinist Sam Bardfeld is also a featured member of Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions Band, as well as the Jazz Passengers, and he has worked with John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, and John Cale. Oud/saz player Brandon Terzic leads the Howling Makams and has performed with Minu Cinelu.
